Carmilla by J. Sheridan Le Franu

 

3/5

This short vampire novella was an interesting but not life changing read. The plot is simple and the “twist” is easily guessed about halfway into the books. The chapters are not incredibly relatable and the events are not attention grabbing as I would have hoped that been.

The classic vampire tale definitely fell short of expectations and I was hoping for more focus upon Carmilla as a creature of the night.

I feel there is more story left untold which although could be mysterious seems in this instance to just be frustrating.

Thanks for reading

Nancy
